It was great to work with Diesel today. He is progressing very well with all of his skills but was challenged with the pods.
It was a PLEASURE training with your pooch today and we look forward to continuing to help you achieve your goals, skills and improve your relationship.
Your journey does not end here, it has only just begun!
"I trained hard, I played hard! Please find below the skills we worked on and my results. I look forward to showing you what I learnt and working on them more with you!" If you have any questions about the skills we trained please feel free to contact todays trainer."
|Skill||Comment||We focused on||Grade|
|Skill learnt: Loose Lead (No pull)||Comment: In his first session, Diesel focused on further developing his skill 'loose lead' with a muzzle, around high distractions (in and around the pet retreat facility). Diesel performed very well, he happily placed his nose in the muzzle and was calm while it was on. Diesel happily walked past 10 dogs in the kennel barking at him while he remained engaged and focused with his trainer.||Focus: Distraction||A|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his second session, Diesel focused on further developing his skill in 'soccer' within the classroom. Diesel loves training this skill and is progressing very well. He interacted with the ball straight away, he did touch it with his paws but with some guidance, he began to roll it along the ground. As he was performing so well the trainer began to challenge him by rolling the ball towards him, then him rolling it back. Diesel progresses great.||Focus: Foundation||B+|
|Skill learnt: Trick Training||Comment: In his final session, Diesel focused on learning the new skill 'pods' within the classroom. This skill is where Diesel places all four paws onto different small pods. Diesel struggled with this skill, he would paw the pods away. The trainer used one pod to help encourage him to stand on it. With some guidance, he slowly began to hold his paw onto the pod.||Focus: Foundation||C|
We recommend your next step should be…
A: Outstanding (90 – 100%) I understand my training, Neat & Complete! Ready to move on to higher difficulty & distraction
B: Great Work (80-89%) I mostly understand, Almost neat & complete! Needs practice in some areas. Mild distractions
C: Well Done (70-79%) Some good progress. Needs work, but on my way. Still learning. Low distractions.
D: Beginning (60-69%) My journey is just beginning, I don’t understand just yet. Introduction phase. No distraction.
E: Unable to Progress. Needs major focus, seek further options to assist.
X: Not gradable, the focus was on Enrichment, Socialisation & Engagement.
